Shoe Sign

It’s tradition to remove outdoor shoes in most Asian households. Actually it’s also becoming an indoor clean air practice. Our LEED requirement is to have shoe storage at the door. But not all visitors are aware, and actually I need a reminder sometimes, so they needed a sign.
I have a set of stencils that we thought would work well but I didn’t want to make a sign from the pallet boards as I originally intended. Too many other projects.

I decided to try a framed chalkboard and use liquid chalk for the letters. The first board was big and warped, the second a little smaller but too country looking. I kept it for myself. The third was perfect with a white frame but then the stencils didn’t fit.
I just did freehand lettering so we could put up the sign. Can redo it at a later date.

I had some “help” from my granddaughter so there were a couple of small smears. But for now it’s a handy reminder.
